MONDAY, MAY 22 9:00—11:00 AM $125

Join Natalie Goldberg and Katie Arnold for a morning of walking and writing on Santa Fe’s hiking trails. Together, participants will explore the connection between silence, movement, nature, and their imaginations. Walking through the natural world is a form of story-gathering and telling, as well as a moving meditation. The deeper we go into the silence of forest and mountains, the deeper we go into our own minds. Join us as we walk the trails in search of ideas and inspiration, foraging for stories.

Longtime friends and Zen practitioners, Katie and Natalie will share their way of walking in nature as a way of writing. This is a generative, processoriented walking and writing workshop that will include periods of silence. Bring a pen and a notebook and your curiosity, as we’ll be stopping often along the trail for writing exercises and prompts. All levels of hikers, walkers, and writers are welcome.

Natalie Goldberg is the renowned author of 15 books, including the international bestseller Writing Down the Bones, Wild Mind, and Three Simple Lines. Katie is the author of the critically acclaimed memoir Running Home, an ultrarunning champion, and a frequent contributor to Outside magazine and The New York Times. Her next book, Brief Flashings in the Phenomenal World, will be published in 2024.
